The Robb Report 100 Resorts: Africa & The Middle East: Singita Lebombo and Sweni Lodges

Singita Lebombo and Sweni Lodges, Kruger National Park, South Africa

Singita’s Lebombo and Sweni lodges—two sister camps located on the remote eastern edge of Kruger National Park—represent the ultimate combination of refinement and authenticity in the African bush. The camps, separated by about 750 feet, consist of 21 stunning, glass-enclosed suites, where hand-blown Murano glass chandeliers cast light on saligna wood flooring and woven furnishings. At night, guests are escorted between the camps by armed guards, who serve as reminders of what lies just beyond Singita’s sleek walls. Excursions through the surrounding 33,000-acre concession—open exclusively to Singita guests—afford regular sightings of lions and other Big Five game, as well as giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, monkeys, and more, all of which seem blissfully unaware of the twice-daily human migration. ($1,650 per person, all-inclusive) www.singita.com
